Banana Bread

The sun has become too much for my british constitution, I spent the morning with a migraine, and took shelter for the afternoon inside, indulging in some gentle baking.

This recipe was adapted from a Delia Smith one for a banana and walnut bread.

160g wholemeal flour
60g oat bran
4 tsp of baking powder
170g muscavado sugar
110g butter
2 eggs
3 bananas
1 pear
1/2 cup dates
1/2 cup of milk
2tsp of cinnamon
tbsp of honey.
1/2 cup of walnuts

Heat the oven to 180 oc
Cut up the dates and soak in the milk. Combine the oat bran, flour, baking powder, and sugar. Fold in the melted butter, and eggs. Mash the banana and peel and chop the pear. Roughly chop the walnuts. Add half the walnuts, the dates and milk, the pear and banana to the mixture and fold in. Spoon into a greased loaf tin. Sprinkle with the rest of the walnuts and the honey.
Bake for about 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in comes out clean.
